My daughters' name-help!

So, my DH and I are having our first and only(probably)daughter. We have decided her first name is going to be Mckaeli. Her middle name is going to be Rae. However, DH wants to spell it Ray. UGH! That's the boys way of spelling it! Anywho, I was wondering what you thought of different ways to spell it? Which one do you like best, feel free to add suggestions-DH won't budge from Rae-trust me, I've tried! I'm thinking about going with Raye-but do you guys think it's too boyish still?
Rae-this is the way I want to spell it
Thanks ladies' for your advice!

  • Rae. English is my second language, and I was taught that Rae is a girl's name, Ray is short for Raymond, a boy's name.

  • WOW on the spelling of Mckaeli! He is ok with that and isn't budging on Rae? That seems odd to me. I prefer Rae personally. Good luck

  • My middle girls middle name is spelled rae.

  • My middle anme is Rae and so is my older daughters. Rae is good for a girl. Ray is for a boy. Some hubbies dont understand that. he is just thinking logical spelling. But Raye would be a compromise and I think it's more girly than boyish so would be good. Good Luck!

  • Rae is my first pick and probably the most proper way to spell it as far as people not pronouncing it wrong, but my second choice would be Raiye.

  • Honestly I've never cared for the spelling Rae, IDK why. I DO like Raye.
